Yeah.. still a bad Blogger..

Since it's been 3 months since I last posted anything.. here I go......

A few things have been going on with us recently. We found out we are having a baby. A bit of a surprise for sure. We are all getting used to the idea of a 3rd Cole running around.. but we are all excited for sure. The baby is due December 11th.. so I'll have a birthday buddy in December! Yeah!

We've been working on our yard, catching up from slacking off last year. Fixing fence, moving animals from our pasture to the new one we set up, t-ball season has come and gone and planning and planting our garden.

Zane is really starting to talk and that has been so much fun. He LOVES cows and whenever I pull in at night, that is their time to get water.. so we have to stop when we pull in the driveway and talk to the cows. He has a favorite and we named her Ferdie. He LOVES stories about Ferdie and their adventures. They always end up at the Fair every story and always win the blue ribbon for the most BEAUTIFUL cow at the fair. He loves this.

Logan started riding his bike with no training wheels a couple months ago and hasn't stopped riding. We spend alot of time riding our bikes now.. which is great for me! Next thing on his list is learning to ride his 50.. so we'll be working on that next month I think. Makes mom nervous, but I knew this day would come.

I've been trying to think of names for the baby and it's been really hard this time. I'm really stuck on a girl name :o) but know I need to be prepared for another dirty boy.. which really would be just fine. I do love my boys. So any suggestions would be great! One that we are thinking about right now is Quinn Alexandra.. What do you think? Tell the truth.. :o)

Wow.. I'm a bad Blogger...

I kinda forgot about my blog. Sorry! Life for the Cole's has been busy! The winter months for me are time to hibernate.. I tend to want to stay home and hang with the family and just be. After the hustle and bustle of summer and hunting season.. winter means family time and relaxing. I guess it's fitting that as spring approaches.. here I am. Back out in the world.

So here are somethings that are coming up and going on with us:

Jeremy is teaming up with one of Logan's buddies dads to coach t-ball this spring. I'm not sure how he really feels about this.. but Logan is really excited. He's been bragging to all his friends that HIS dad is gonna be the coach.

We finally broke down and bought a new computer. I've been putting this off for about 2 years.. I don't know why. Sometimes the little things really stress me out.. buying a new computer was stressing me out. But we did it.. and I love it.

My parents bought a motorhome. This cracks me up. I can't wait to take pictures and spend some serious camping time with the parentals.

I decided not to ride with the drill team this year. Jeremy and I decided together that we really need to slow down. We try to do so much.. and in turn, miss out. We have no obligations this spring and summer. Our schedule is wide open. I only have one goal.. I want an arbor that covers my patio and a tan. I want to get up on Saturday morning and not have to be somewhere.. or just decides.. let's go camping! Or let's stay home and play outside.

Here are some recent pictures:

Goodbye Summer... Welcome Fall!

This summer, has been the busiest summer EVER for our family. Every weekend and almost every weeknight this summer has been booked! I am LONGING for the cold, blustery days & nights of fall and winter.. not only because I love them.. but because that will make us STAY HOME!

I will miss those family quad rides down to the river with the neighbors and the spur of the moment bbq's with everyone. I'll miss the evenings of haying and then the BIG dinner afterwards. I like to eat can you tell? I'll miss hearing the screaming and hysterical laughing coming from Logan when he's playing outside till midnight with his BFF's. I'll miss getting our blankets and going out in the backyard to lay down on summer nights and looking up at the stars with Logan. I love summer.. but I am SO ready for fall.

Fall for us brings Logan's birthday. He turned 4 this year. His birthday is September 11th or Patriot Day. This was the first year that we discussed what that means. We were heading up to the Puyallup (tradition for us on his b-day) and when we drove under the Freedom Bridge by Fort Lewis, Logan asked why there were yellow ribbons and flags all over the bridge. So Jeremy and I told him the story. He was very interested and very proud that that was his birthday.

It also brings Zane's birthday (October 17th), Jeremy's birthday (October 5th), Lisa's wedding (FINALLY!!!) on the 17th, hunting season (which already started btw). It also brings FOOTBALL season, which I love. I don't know why this started.. maybe because I have 2 boys? I'm not sure. But I think it started when I was pregnant with Logan. I became a die hard football fanatic. I get so excited for Sunday. I plan my whole weekends around the games. I can't wait for my boys to be Little T-Birds. I'm gonna be that crazy mom who dresses in green and gold with the picture buttons on her coat screaming on the side lines.

Fall means getting out my sweaters and coats. There are 3 things I'm obsessed with: 1) Jeans 2) Coats 3) Shoes. It's like Christmas for me. "OH! Look at this one!" Oh I LOVE this Coat!" I'm just dying for a cold day to where my boots, jeans and a warm comfy sweater.

Fall also means a lot of alone time for me. Jeremy spends October and November hunting. When he is home, his mind is else where. I try to plan things to do with Logan, and now with both boys.. Mommy and the boys time. I try to get projects done that normally I would push off for 'later', which never comes. Hopefully this year I can get that dreaded painting finished. We moved into our house almost 6 years ago, and I still haven't finished painting the interior trim and doors. Trust me, I will not ever pick white trim in my house ever again. GRRR.

4 years ago....

4 years ago I became a mother. Something that was frightening yet at the same time exciting. I always knew that I would be a mom, it's something that I have wanted more than anything. I remember being scared and overwhelmed by this little squishy blob that NEEDED me for everything.. He needed me to feed him, change his dirty diapers, give him medicine when his teeth hurt and to LOVE him. It's hard to imagine that 4 years ago I acheived one of my ultimate dreams. Thank you Logan for picking me! I love you sweet baby boy!
